5.0 out of 5 stars Darkness on the edge of town... 6 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit, I love The Twilight Sad. I own pretty much everything they have done and have seen them live on more than one occasion. The Wrong Car is one of my all time favourite videos. So I'm biased; but don't let that put you off what I have to say. This is an immense, bold soundscape of an album that gets better at every listen. There is a sonic shift in comparison to their previous offerings; electro is more to the fore, the guitar is understated. But the sound is unmistakably, classic, Twilight Sad - songs driven by keen drums and the beautiful Celtic voice of James Graham. I'd pick out individual songs (Nil is the standout track), but as with previous albums, each blends together to form a magnificent whole. Cracking stuff; a band on the up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting closer to genius 10 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As with previous Twilight Sad recordings there is a feel of lyricism and poetry about James Graham's writing that lifts the Twilight Sad to another level from most of their peers, while his Scottish brogue is instantly recognisable. As if that wasn't enough No One Can Ever Know is musically a world away from their previous efforts, subtle and sophisticated with electronic sounscapes, effects, more Joy Division than previous influences such as Mogwai. Having said that this is not the most uplifting recording you will have heard this year, (just a glance through the song titles will tell you that: sick, dead city, nil, kill it in the morning etc) but it's one to sit down with, and give a few listens to as the hidden subtleties in the music reveal themselves. Well worth trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Depressants 21 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is my first Twilight Sad album and I'm blown away by its depth and how lyrical his voice can be. Stand out tracks are Alphabet, Nil and Not Sleeping. The music has the same lo-fi electronic vibe of Joy Division, though in a more contemporary finely tuned sense and feel a little like The Smiths meets The Cure. Each track is pretty engrossing though I do feel that some tracks later in the album lose the focus the earlier ones had. The lyrics are appropriately dark and with his Scottish twang feel particularly cutting. Highly recommended. 4.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars No one may never how good this is... 9 Feb 2012
By Timothy R. Wilcox - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I will not break it down track by track but overall the album is intensely personal and one that will reward patience. I dig the string synths on most of the tracks. I think that it gives it a spacey, almost surreal touch to it. This album is heavily influenced by Krautrock and Industrial. If you are a fan of the less-poppy Cure or Bauhaus, this would be a solid purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, melancholic songs with a raw & subtle tension 23 Mar 2012
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The 4th release from this Glasgow, Scotland band retains the dark, sweeping overtones of the
previous albums, but fills the gaps with swirling synthesizers where guitars once ruled. These
are epic soaring storms of darkly haunted, semi-orchestrated grandeur, punctuated by sweeping
electronic flourishes and the distant roar of slowly building guitars. The majestic scope of these
songs is perfectly complimented by the magnificently compassionate Scottish brogue of singer
James Graham. Beautiful, melancholic songs with a raw & subtle sense of tension that slowly
grows in intensity and power until it permeates the senses with the strength of its expansive,
broodingly dangerous aura. Recalls bands like We Were Promised Jetpacks, John Knox Sex
Club, Frightened Rabbit, Glasvegas, Joy Division, with a hint of the Smiths & Cure in the vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspired 6 Mar 2012
By joakess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent new release! I love their previous albums and was hesitant about the electronic sound of Another Bed, but the song has has grown on me, and the electronics have only added depth to their song writing. the rest of the album continues to have their heavy sound rich with atmospheric guitars, awesome drums and Scottish Burr. They have an edge to their music that is unique and plays with your senses in all the right ways. Awesome album equally good as the others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing and terrific in equal measure 5 Aug 2012
By Nse Ette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was steered to this album by an Amazon friend and I love it. The Twilight Sad are an Indie trio from Scotland, and "No One Can Ever Know" is their third album. Dark and gloomy awash in shimmery synths and trilling or distorted guitars best describes the sound on this album. If you like Editors, The Cure, Interpol, or Depeche Mode, this will be right up your alley.

The album comprises just 9 tracks, opening with the harrowing but absolutely beautiful "Alphabet" which finds lead vocalist James Graham singing "I was hoping on a good day you would be fine" in his thick Glaswegian brogue heavy in rolled "R's". "Dead City" is a pulsing rocker with guitars screeching in the background and doleful vocals, as is the similar "Don't Look At Me". "Sick" is a gently jangly number with hesitant electronic pulsing beats and sweeping strings.

"Don't Move" is filled with distorted flourishes, "Nil" is almost hymnal building to a rocking climax, "No Sleeping" is a spare haunting ballad, "Another Bed" sets pulsing synths to galloping beats, while closing is the epic atmospheric "Kill It In The Morning" with fuzzy dizzying effects and pulsing beats. The song takes on a rockier sound in the final 2 minutes with skyscraping guitars and Graham closing with the lines "What more do you need to know? It's staying here well down below." Mysterious and beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Support this wonderful band 25 May 2012
By Hitch22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm an older person, probably heard nearly everything, certainly every genre. It's rare now for me to be excited by new "pop/rock" bands. This however blew my socks off.This is why I still wait for long periods like a cat after a mouse because when you catch......so great. As at 25/05 bought all their stuff. IT'S ALL WONDERFUL SO FAR!!!
